Yes and yes. For "new" articles an article only has the first week to get those 3 votes. After the first week is over it will not be considered for the "new" section of the upcoming newsletter. However, if you were to update it and it had 3 votes it would be considered for the "updated articles" section of the newsletter.
You are totally correct. First time I posted my first post I had the posts set up in a way that they were showing full content (not excerpts). After that I changed it to only show excerpts, and posted two additional posts. Then, when I saw that the codeproject wasn't pulling in my blog feed I changed the posts settings back to the full content, but that didn't help so I was lost.
Currently posts are set to show full content, thereby the feed shows the full content of all posts.
I have been trying to publish this article for AppInnovation. But everytime that I click on Publish it gives an error: "The content is either too short or default". The article looks fine when I Preview it. The article ID is: 640977
This error is thrown even though the lenght of the article is substantial. Any suggestions as to what should I do?
